Proving Problems
« on: April 12, 2005, 08:00:43 PM »
For the past 15 years i have suffered with my right knee locking and causing pain and noise when straightend and unlocked. Even though i have had a patella tendon transfer, Pin stablisation, and numerouse key hole cartlidge trim's the problem has come back every time and all the time i have had trouble trying to prove that the symtoms exist becuase they happen randomly and when they wan't. I am really at my wits end and not sure where to turn i recently had another mri scan and my (new) specialist said that the symtoms do not fit with the damage and that phisio treatment is necessary after a few choice words ie i'm not in the habbit of making problems up and not laughing at his remark obout him not wanting to cut out bits that i need he said that he would perform another arthroscopy and if there was a problem he would fix it but if he doe'snt find one it would be a waste of surgey. I am totally disgusted that i am in this situation where by i have lost my faith in the system and do not know where to turn. all i do know is that my knee hurts all the time and when it locks it hurts even more . hope there is someone on here who has an idea what to due cause i'm losing it thx all

My suggestion would be to get a second opinion. I went back to a dr in intense pain about 6 months after he performed surgery and he ordered an MRI. He said that there was nothing wrong with me. My mother, the persistant person that she is, got me into another dr that read the same MRI and said that the first dr had messed up the surgery. It took two operations to fix the problem. Go with your gut instinct. You know your body and if you think that something is wrong, it probably is. Best of Luck!
